Michael Kamrava, the Beverly Hills fertility expert who treated octuplets mom Nadya Suleman, wants his medical license back from the state of California, according to recently filed court records. An attorney for Kamrava contended that the Medical Board of California's ultimate decision to revoke Kamrava's medical license, effective July 1, was too harsh and a reaction to the "popular vilification" of Kamrava in the media. "The revocation of Dr. Kamrava's license is hardly necessary to protect the public.

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman, the 38-year-old mother with 14 children, including a set of octuplets, pleaded not guilty Friday to felony charges that she lied about her income on welfare applications. Prosecutors said earlier this month that Suleman received $16,481 in state welfare payments during the first half of 2013 that she would not have been sent had she properly disclosed nearly $30,000 in earnings during that same period. Suleman, who drew international attention in 2009 as only the second U.S. woman to successfully give birth to octuplets, earned the money from personal appearances and video royalties, prosecutors said.

The medical ethics controversy that erupted when Nadya Suleman gave birth to octuplets two years ago took a decisive turn Wednesday when the California medical board announced it will revoke the license of the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who helped the single mother of six conceive eight more children. The "Octomom" case focused national attention on what critics have called "the Wild West" of fertility medicine. And Dr. Michael Kamrava, who assisted Suleman by implanting her with 12 embryos, became a symbol to some of the problems in the burgeoning industry.

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman, who drew international attention in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets, could face years in jail for allegedly failing to disclose nearly $30,000 in earnings when she applied for welfare last year, prosecutors announced Monday. Suleman, 38, is only the second U.S. woman to deliver a healthy set of octuplets. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said prosecutors recently charged her with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application for aid. Suleman, who has a total of 14 children, filed for welfare in Lancaster in January and February of last year, but in the following months didn't report all of her income from personal appearances and video royalties, Deputy Dist.

At a hearing Thursday, a California deputy attorney general urged the Medical Board of California to revoke the medical license of the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets. "Revocation is proper. It's the only way to ensure public protection," Deputy Atty. Gen. Judith T. Alvarado said. Dr. Michael Kamrava's medical license could be revoked if it is determined that he was grossly negligent in his treatment of Suleman and two other female patients: a 48-year-old who suffered complications after she became pregnant with quadruplets and a 42-year-old diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets and six previous children said during testimony Wednesday that his goal with each pregnancy was to produce a single baby and that Suleman agreed to reduce the number of fetuses if the treatment were to result in multiple births. "We don't really intentionally want to make it a multiple pregnancy ? our goal is a single term pregnancy," said Dr. Michael Kamrava. "However, this is not an exact science.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets said he made a mistake by implanting her with a dozen embryos at her insistence and against his better judgment. "I'm sorry for what happened. When I look back at it, I wish I had never done it and it will never happen again," Dr. Michael Kamrava said Thursday, wiping away tears. "Do you feel that what you did was wrong?" asked his attorney, Henry Fenton. "At the time that I did it, I thought I did the right thing," said Kamrava, who testified before Administrative Law Judge Daniel Juarez in Los Angeles at the Medical Board of California hearing.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets should be placed on five years' probation rather than have his license revoked, a judge has recommended to the Medical Board of California. The recommendation, released Monday, came more than a year after medical board officials first moved to revoke the medical license of Dr. Michael Kamrava . The state medical board is expected to consider the judge's proposal when it meets Thursday in Burlingame, according to Jennifer Simoes, a board spokeswoman.

The Medical Board of California has accused a Beverly Hills fertility doctor of a pattern of gross negligence that led to the birth of Nadya Suleman's 14 children, including the world's longest-surviving octuplets, and created a "stockpile" of unused frozen embryos which serve "no clinical purpose." The 13-page accusation filed in December against Dr. Michael Kamrava paints a picture of 11 years of medical care in which Suleman returned to Kamrava's office again and again to undergo fertility treatments.

The Medical Board of California has accused the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who treated octuplets mother Nadya Suleman of transferring too many embryos in a second woman and failing to order additional tests for a patient suffering from stage 3 ovarian cancer. Dr. Michael Kamrava transferred seven embryos to a 48-year-old woman identified as L.C. — more than the medically recommended two embryos — causing her to become pregnant with quadruplets, the board said. Complications forced the babies to be delivered six weeks early by cesarean section.
